birdsandbees

This series started with four tiny drypoint etchings (each 2.5″ x 3.5″). The etchings were arranged side by side and printed in a grouping. Then the plates were re-inked, rearranged, and then printed again on the same piece of paper. After this was finished, xerox images of birds wings were transferred on top using a pressure/chemical transfer process.

Finally, the finished etching was folded into a French-fold book, and then photocopied. Folding instructions were also printed on the reverse side. Over 1,000 of these photocopies were then stacked, and viewers were invited to take one and fold it into a wallet-sized book to take home with them.
Other iterations of this series are also included below.
